North Carolina Resident Database Opt Out & Data Removal Guide

North Carolina Resident Database is a website that publishes the personal information of North Carolina residents online. Though not affiliated with the state government, these profiles are considered public information. They include information such as court records, government records, criminal records, arrest records, address, and date of birth.

Thankfully, opting out is fairly easy. If you follow the instructions below, it should only take up to 10 minutes. It isn’t a permanent solution, though. Your record may respawn over time so you should repeat the process periodically.
